Thanks for the comments guys :D

Its all 1st & 2nd Edition stuff that I just dug up from books and such really Jacs.

I have been meaning to put it up for a while and had a couple of days off work to draw all the glyphs up in paint. With the Ork codex rumours flying about the forums I thought I should get it up in time for the 'Green Tide'. :)

If anyone spots any omissions let me know please.

Thanks Vash

Pretty sure they were in a Gorkamorka book, later released free on the web.
